Richard W:Yes. The tinted lenses can replace sunglasses. The drawback is that you're always tinted. I bought the clear to solve my fogging problem and also purchased the tinted lens for sunny days but found it too much of a pain to change lenses constantly, so now I just run with the clear lens and wear sunglasses as necessary. This system works great to keep the shield from fogging. Aug 18, 2014
DOUGLAS P:The pinlock system is not just for foggy, wet and cool days. I use mine day and night year round although the manufacturer says not to use it at night. But I think it's not well suited to replace sunglasses, because it leaves an unprotected area across the top of the field of view, and it's not polarized.Aug 19, 2014
Tim P:Yes it works great as a replacement to sun glasses , yellow ! If if it's clean & not dusty or foggy wet ! If you keep the shield closed it will work longer ! Bottom line it must stay clean or it's twice the problem . I don't use mine anymore .Aug 18, 2014
Richard N:Yes, the idea is to allow you to adjust for the conditions and prevent fogging. I leave my light tint lens in all the time and only swap it out when needed. It is a bit more work than popping on a pair of sunglasses though.Aug 19, 2014
Michael M:I have the clear Pinlock... can't really comment on how dark the colored lens is. The benefit of the Pinlock for me is for the cold / wet days. I still wear sunglasses (non-polarized) on the sunny days.Aug 18, 2014
A shopper asked:The pinloc website says the system consists of a pinloc prepared lens and a pinloc lens. I only see the pinloc lens when I ran a search on your site. Where do I get the pinlock prepared Shoei Hornet lens? I guess I need to get two lenses? the pinloc lens and the other to mount it on?Jul 20, 2011
